Kanto Lampo Waterfall In Bali – A Complete Guide

Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali is an upcoming tourist spot and perfect for a day visit from Ubud. Hidden away in the jungle, here’s all the info for visiting.

How To Get To Kanto Lampo Waterfall

Kanto Lampo Waterfall is located just a 30 minute drive from Ubud, and roughly an hour drive from Canggu.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. 

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand! 

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

One of the most popular tours is the Blue Lagoon, Kanto Lampo Waterfall Tour with Lunch.

Kanto Lampo Waterfall Entrance Fee

Entrance: 15,000 IDR per person.

Kato Lampo Waterfall Opening Times

Monday – Sunday: 6.30am – 5.30pm.

Best Time To Visit Kanto Lampo Waterfall

The best time to visit anywhere in Bali, if possible, is between April and October which is the island’s dry season.

You can visit the falls year round but you need to consider the increase in rainfall between November and March. This always makes the jungle treks a little more difficult and slippery.

This area in particular is increasingly becoming one of the more popular spots on the island for taking photographs. So it can get a little crowded at times.

Therefore, as with anywhere in Bali, the best time to visit is always earlier in the day to beat the crowds!

If you’re a keen photographer, then we always recommend arriving at the waterfalls for sunrise (or as soon as they open) in order to get the place to yourself.

What To Expect At Kanto Lampo Waterfall In Bali

From the car park, it’s a steady five minute walk by stairs to reach Kanto Lampo Waterfall.

The walk runs through the rice terraces and down into the rocks. It’s one of the easiest waterfalls in Bali to get to and it’s highly suitable for families and small children.

It doesn’t involve any strenuous trekking or dangerous obstacles, therefore any footwear should be fine.

We recommend visiting as early as possible in order to get some space at the waterfall, as it can get a little busy and there is not much space to explore.

Our experience at Kanto Lampo Waterfall took place at around 2pm and it was pretty busy, as you’ll be able to see in the images shown.

We do believe we hit it at an unexpected rush, as some of the tourists were saying it had all of a sudden got super busy.

Sitting in a canyon, Kanto Lampo Waterfall itself is a beautiful, multi-tier waterfall. The perfect place for a peaceful escape into the Bali jungle and a great way to relax out of peak times.

The water cascading over the tiered rock formations also makes for some great photo opportunities.

With it being not so far from Ubud, we definitely recommend a sunrise at Tegalalang Rice Terraces along with a trip to Tegenungan Waterfall.
